Unpaid Overtime and Wage and Hour Cases


The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) makes it illegal for an employer to not pay either the minimum wage or overtime (one and one-half times the employee’s regular hourly rate for all hours over forty in any one week). Most FLSA cases involve an employer’s failure to pay overtime - - most commonly because the employer mistakenly claims the employee is “exempt” from being paid overtime because they are a “manager” and get paid a salary. However, getting paid a salary, or being called a manager or “administrator”, does not determine whether you are entitled to overtime pay. Rather, under the FLSA, there are specific tests that closely examine a particular employee’s job duties to determine if they must be paid overtime.


FLSA overtime cases are often strongly defended by the employer because the outcome of one case will generally impact many other employees. If you have an FLSA overtime claim, it is important to retain an attorney with the experience and commitment necessary to take on your employer. The Law Office of Bryan Monaghan has that experience and commitment.  Contact us at 248.608.5300 or at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
